'The Greatest Event In Television History' Almost Lives Up To Its Name

Of course, it's Adult Swim, so you know there's no chance that they're not going to take the opportunity to screw with their audience. And honestly, we wouldn't have it any other way. With all the build-up of the Adult Swim marketing machine, fans of both Cartoon Network and the countless stars attached to the project were expecting...something. And something is exactly what they got. If by "something," you meant a "shot-for-shot remake of the Simon & Simon opening credits but with Jon Hamm and Adam Scott in the lead roles." Just watch, ok?

No Animal Is Safe In Adult Swim's 'NTSF:SD:SUV' Trailer

This show really raises to bar for acronyms in titles. Almost too high. What Children's Hospital did to medical dramas, it appears NTSF:SD:SUV will do to police dramas such as Law & Order, CSI, and 24. Originally a bumper parody from Children's Hospital, NTSF quickly spun off into its very own 15 minute series, getting disproportionately big names like Martin Starr, Adam Scott in a wheelchair, Rebecca Romijn, Jeff Goldblum, Rob Riggle, Wilmer Valderrama, Kate Mulgrew, and Ed Helms, all of whom seem to have no problem putting their images aside in the name of jackassery. There's no shortage of awesome moments in this trailer, but if I had to pick a favorite one, it would certainly be the guinea pig exploding at the :40 mark. Also, a beached dolphin gets punched. Like the bastard he probably is.


Watch John C. Reilly Fall Over Again And Again In This Adult Swim Pilot Clip

Check it out! John C. Reilly's Steve Brule character has come a long way. He's gone from just being a passing character on Tim and Eric's show to the star of his own show, Check it Out! With Steve Brule, to now playing an actor playing a character on a sitcom pilot called Bagboy. This five minute clip was show to audiences during the Tim and Eric live tour last year. It's confusing, but like with most of Tim and Eric's stuff, you don't need to really understand it to laugh at it. Like most of the Adult Swim stuff, you'll either like it or you won't, and it's doubtful this will grow on you. I've always found Steve Brule to be the funniest, most accessible part of the Tim and Eric world, and this clip seems to be even more mainstream normal than anything before. Does this mean Steve Brule is going to become the next Matthew Perry? Why, yes it does. (A.V. Club)


Jon Hamm Is Smooth In ‘Bridesmaids’ International Trailer

I find his attitude refreshingly European. Bridesmaids isn't through trying to convince you that it's actually secretly funny. A new international trailer has begun to swim its way across the pond and this one plays to Jon Hamm's strengths... being a total dick to women. In this trailer, we see Hamm do his careful best to dismiss Kristen Wiig after a night of hot, steamy, bra-on sex (Hollywood's favorite kind). But we shouldn't rush to judge. Perhaps he just needs to fart really badly. Sometimes that happens to fellas. Especially if they aren't careful about what they eat the night before. Damn you, Nestle Flipz!!


‘Bridesmaids’ Outtakes: Jon Hamm Likes It Kinky

Kristen Wiig, kindly let Mr. Hamm "drive the bus." I thought the gags in Bridesmaids, gross-out and otherwise, were hilarious. However, I lost interest during the (endless) 45 minute Kristen Wiig pity party. "Boo hoo, I won't call the guy I like." Just keep the joke-em-ups coming, please. [post-video postid="213613"] That's why I'm excited to share the video above from Funny or Die, which is a compilation of unused takes from the movie. It's rapid fire improvs/cut lines from Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, plus the eventually underused Ellie Kemper and Wendi McLendon-Covey. I especially lol'd at the Hamm sex bookends, where things get wackier than in the original cut. I like wackier Jon Hamm. The guy has gravitas to spare, so let him make a butt cheeks joke every once in awhile, Mad Men."


Jon Hamm's Soup Is Done In 'Bridesmaids' Red-Band Trailer

In case you didn't think these bridesmaids were rough-and-tumble...they are. This trailer has the ribald language to prove it. The red-band trailer for Bridesmaids-poster-the-romcom-gods-are-smiling/" target="_blank">Bridesmaids is not terribly different than the green (mauve?)-band trailer, save for three f-bombs, some scattered "shits" (not as gross as it sounds), Kristen Wiig in a bra, and a reference to a fat lady's undercarriage. Other than that, we're still rocking ladies with gas, fat chick talking about fight clubs, and a bunch of other instances of girls acting like guys, only girlier. There's also some shots of Jon Hamm, mid-coitus, which you should find just delightful, regardless of your sexual orientation. He also says "soup's done" in a reference to reaching climax, which I have never heard before, and hope to never hear again. Bridesmaids will completely eff with your sensibilities, in a charming, middle-America way on May 13th.


Netflix 'Marco Polo' Trailer Has Literally Nothing To Do With The Swimming Pool Game

However, if we're drawing parallels, I guess his father, who gave him away as a slave, would be his "fish out of water." In about a month, the new Netflix historical drama/actioner Marco Polo will take you off your couch and into the magical age of discovery. Sounds pretty awesome, eh? Well, you can judge for yourself now that the first full-length trailer is out. While Netflix has offered original series in the past, and will continue to do so, this show, a partnership with The Weinstein Company, seems to exist on a bigger scale than the others. So is Netflix ready to go against the likes of Game of Thrones? Dammit. That's the second rhetorical question you've asked me. Just watch the video.
